Research Profile

Rosie R. Meade

Biography

My interests are quite diverse, but are generally centred on issues of democracy, power and resistance in the social and cultural spheres. I am particularly interested in how communities and social movements challenge oppression and struggle for autonomy through collective action.   Additionally, the politics of cultural representation - how communities and movements are represented in and through media, and how they seek to represent themselves - has been a central theme in my work.  More specifically, I have written, researched and publicly presented on themes that include:
  • the politics of community activism and community development;
  • community activism and its contested relationships with the state;
  • neoliberal governmentalities and the professionalisation of civil society and community activism;
  • media representations of social movements, community activism and protest;
  • solidarity and the tactics of protest;
  • cultural practices, cultural democracy and cultures of resistance;
  • the theory and praxis of community arts;
  • the politics of the Left;
  • alternative media practices;
  • territorial stigmatisation;
  • ressentiment and its expressions through anti-welfare populism. .

My colleague Órla O'Donovan and I are currently the editors of the international Community Development Journal (
http://cdj.oxfordjournals.org/).  Along with
Órla O'Donovan and Fiona Dukelow, both colleagues of mine in the School of Applied Social Studies, and Heather Laird of UCC's Department of English,  I am  an editor of the Síreacht Series that is published by Cork University Press.  More information on the series and the titles published to date can be found at: http://sireacht.ie/ 

With Mae Shaw of Edinburgh University and Sarah Banks of Durham University, I am a series editor of the Rethinking Community Development Series that is published by Policy Press in Bristol. Please follow this link for more information.https://policypress.co.uk/rethinking-community-development 

Aside from my involvement as Editor and member of the editorial board of the Community Development Journal, I have also acted as a peer reviewer for a number of national and international journals. They include: Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, European Journal of Social Theory, Antipode; Critical Studies in Media Communication; Policy and Politics; Studies in the Education of Adults, The Irish Feminist Review; The Irish Journal of Public Policy; The Irish Journal of Sociology; Voluntary Sector Review.

I am currently a member of the BSocSc and DSocSc Teams in the School of Applied Social Studies, and I teach on the BSocSc, BSocSc (Youth and Community Work), MSocSc and DSocSc programmes.

Research Interests

My teaching, research and activist interests include:
  • The arts and cultural democracy;
  • Brand Ireland and 'functionalised' culture;
  • Cultural resistance and alternative media;
  • Media representations of social movements and protest;
  • Community development, government and the state;
  • Adult and community education;
  • 'Left' politics in Ireland. 
  • Territorial Stigmatisation
  • Ressentiment and populism
Currently I am collaborating with my colleagues Mae Shaw (Institute of Education, Community and Society, Moray House, University of Edinburgh) and Sarah Banks (Centre for Social Justice and Community Action, University of Durham) around the development of the book series 'Rethinking Community Development', for Policy Press (Bristol).  As series editors we envisage that volumes in the series will draw together international, cross-generational and cross-disciplinary perspectives to offer a critical re-evaluation of community development in theory and practice. To date 7 books have been published as part of the series and more information on them can be found at: https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/rethinking-community-development 

Órla  O'Donovan, my colleague in the School of Applied Social Studies, and I are currently the editors of the Community Development Journal and more information about the journal can be accessed at https://academic.oup.com/cdj

With Órla O'Donovan, Fiona Dukelow and Heather Laird, I  am one of the series editors of the Síreacht series which is published by Cork University Press. The Síreacht series are short, topical and provocative texts on controversial issues in contemporary Ireland.  More information can be found here: http://sireacht.ie/
